Trailer Debut: Argo

The trailer for Argo, Ben Affleck‘s directorial follow-up to The Town, has debuted online.

Affleck stars in the film as CIA “exfiltration” specialist Tony Mendez, who is tasked with rescuing six U.S. citizens from Iran during the 1979 hostage crisis.

The CIA’s plot – which remained classified for decades – was to enter Iran under the guise of Canadian filmmakers shooting a sci-fi film entitled Argo (you can check out the fake movie’s real poster here).

The only thing more spectacular than this premise is the period-appropriate hair of the principal cast members.

Check out the trailer and share your thoughts below.


Argo also features Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, and John Goodman. It hits Australian cinemas November 1, 2012.
